New stamps from Chocolate Baroque and Wild Rose Studio

I have lots of lovely new stamps in and some big news from Chocolate Baroque is that they are now producing a clear range.

Rubber stamps are gorgeous and very tough but clear stamps are fantastic for exact positioning.

The clever people at Chocolate Baroque have packaged their new clear stamps in a sturdy presentation folder with tabs so that you can store them in a folder.

They also include a paper cover with the image on the front and handy tips for use and storage on the back. Lovely.

Not a great photo sorry it was a bit overcast this morning when I was trying to photograph.

I only have 3 so far but they just released a few more this weekend so of course I'll have to go back and order some more.

Chocolate Baroque also have some gorgeous Christmas stamps out as well. Actually all of the stamps they release are beautiful so have a look in the New Line section of my website.

Pears & Baubles is a favourite of mine and over the next few weeks I'll continue to show you what I've made out of it.
Here are 2 very quick cards using a cheap white card that I purchased from a discount shop.
Simply ink up and stamp the bauble in Versamark (embossing ink) onto the card. Cover with
 red embossing powder, shake off the excess and then heat it until the powder melts.
 Run a line of Wonder Tape (double sided tape able to take heat) down from the top to meet the top of the bauble. Peel off the top layer and cover with red embossing powder. shake off excess and heat until powder is melted.
Stamp the Happy Christmas in Black Archival Ink.
#Tip - if you are using cheaper cards that have a glossy coating (or any glossy cardstock) be careful when you handle the card straight after stamping as the ink will still be wet and could smudge.

I've done this one exactly  the same except prior to stamping the sentiment I used Distress Inks and coloured up the card.
I used Tumbled Glass first then Broken China around the edges.
I'll be back with some more.
